I figured this would be the best section to post this, so about a month ago when I found out Helen was pregnant I realized holiday's would be out the question for a while. I told my wife if we can't go away I'll bring a bit of Spain over to us.

That got me thinking and I'd read online about Pergola's, I ended up ordering one online and it was delivered within a week. The shit part of this was they refused to move it into the garden so at 6am, yes, literally 6am in the morning I was outside shifting all the wood/materials into my back garden (sorry to the people next door).

I got to work but the plans were TERRIBLE, considering this thing cost about Uk £400 I was not happy, to say the least. I ended up having to travel up to some shops and buy extra materials because of the crappy manual, but that's a long winded story.

The overall plan is to make it a bit Spanish outside, this was the exact original image I bookmarked actually:
Note - Mine is obviously nowhere near that big, nor will it look as good (yet).

I have invested into some: hanging baskets, upwards growing flowers such as large vine, roses, solar powered lighting for the roof,, new table and chairs, and much more. The shit part to all of this was putting it together, but I had my dad helping me out, which was great, but it was still a tall order due to that damn manual. It's NOWHERE near finished yet, I mean the upwards growing flowers such as vine takes years to grow.

Finally, I have ended up with the following:
Note - This thing did not have one single pre drilled hole, we literally had to drill/screw EVERYTHING!

Things yet to do:

1. Finish painting the damn thing (should be done by Monday)
2. Get hanging baskets up
3. Grow the long winded upwards growing flowers
4. Put up the lighting for the roof, which is like this but has different colours:
Took us two days to put this thing together, I'm in the process of getting it painted as well so it's protected against rotting.
This thing took a lot of blood, sweat and some tears but we got there in the end.

Hard work does pay off!
